We all need the advice of an expert sometimes, as well as the personal attention that comes with a trainer or coach. The Y offers personal training and coaching to help you set and meet your specific goals in order to live healthier. Choose from individualized, buddy or small group sessions.
That said, we are excited to offer a virtual personal training option to help you continue on your wellness journey during this time of social distancing. Personal training rates will remain the same as those previously redeemed in our YMCA facilities.

I'm a professional trainer with over 25 years experience receiving my first certification in 1993. Throughout my career I have numerous hours of sessions working with a wide array of people. From absolute beginners to to experienced that know their way around the gym but need that push to reach their best. I'm a firm believer that "one size does not fit all", and it's best to approach each client with the exercise program that fits their needs. Always taking into account injuries past or present and goals that are important to them. I'm the former Fitness Director at the Wilmington Athletic Club where I began an association with Dr. Tyler Whiteside of Momentum PT and Wellness whose practice is located at the Midtown Y and where we have started the Prescribed Exercise Program (PEP) a Post Physical Therapy program.

I am a transplant from New York and am settled in to my new home in Wilmington, NC. My fitness career officially started in 1996 (when I was 12, haha) when I became AFAA Certified in Group Exercise. I have always had a passion for sports and fitness. I had to be one of the few that actually looked forward to physical education in school. I played softball, volleyball and basketball both competitively and recreationally. I currently hold certifications in personal training, spinning, SilverSneakers, TRX and Kettlebell. I have been teaching for over 20 years and truly love that I can help others achieve their fitness goals. Whether you’ve been working out for a while or just starting this journey, know that I am here to help. Some of my favorite classes to teach are Boot Camp and Straps to name a few. My favorite type of training is creating HIIT workouts to keep your metabolism burning calories even after your workout is over. I enjoy running 5Ks and have a lot of energy. I look forward to helping you reach your goalsEducation & Certifications:
Raised in La Jolla, Ca. I have always loved being active. Whether I was competing in Hunter Jumper equestrian events with my horse or traveling to gymnastics competitions I was constantly busy. I graduated from Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and began an acting career in Los Angeles. After I married and had children I found CrossFit and it was love at first lift!! I’ve now devoted myself to helping others fall in love with fitness as well. A trainer and instructor at the Y for almost 10 years, I am extremely passionate about what I do and it shows in my work. I believe fitness is not a one size fits all and that every client needs a personal approach to their fitness journey. I set goals and work with my clients to create their own personalized program. Let me help you become the best version of yourself!!Education & Certifications:
My appreciation for how important health and wellness began as a teenager when my Mother lost a sibling, and her parents early in their lives within a 5 year span due to health complications. I grew up participating in a variety of sports, but my love for running began while attending UNCW and working in the Wilmington community. My interest in endurance training did not begin until my father, a retired marine, was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease & I wanted to dedicate my time to something difficult too. I decided to participate in a triathlon. As his journey continued so did my aspirations, and I completed the B2B Half Ironman in 2013. I have had the privilege to learn personally that exercise is academic & there are medically based guidelines that can help any age group or fitness level reach their goal. I have been fortunate to work with a wide range of individuals varying from early adolescence, postural correction, sport specific, prenatal/post partum, and aging population. Everyone has a different goal for health & fitness, but the method for change is the same. I have always loved what the Y stands for and have participated in several GOTR programs and races. I am so happy to be here!Education & Certifications:

During my college experience at UNC - Wilmington, I majored in Exercise Science and my infatuation for fitness was taken to new heights. I look forward to sharing my my knowledge and experience in the field of health and wellness with others, as well as continue my personal pursuit to be the best I can be every day!
